Question about Samsung RS2630SH Side by Side Refrigerator
I HAVE A SAMSUNG RS2630SH AND THE ICE DISPENSER WORKS EVER ONCE IN A WHILE. IT STARTED WITH A WHIRRING NOISE AND THEN STOPPED MAKING ICE. THEN STARTED AGAIN A LITTLE WHILE AGO. I HAVE READ MANY OF THE POSTS BUT CANNOT FIND THE CORRECT PART NUMBER TO REPLACE THE MOTOR MODULE THAT HAS BEEN SUGGESTED BY OTHERS. THE REFERENCES GIVEN ARE FOR A WHIRLPOOL REFERS. IS THIS THE SAME PART? I CAN FIX IT BUT JUST NEED TO KNOW WHICH PART TO ORDER SO THE REFER WILL GIVE ME ICE AND MY SANITY BACK.
I also have the same model as you. My problem with the ice maker has been build-up of ice under the cube pan which holds the crusher and cubes. ( I pulled the pan out and cleaned up the ice, pushed and re-seated the pan against the back of the freezer where it connects into the crusher motor). In a day or 2 it was working fine again. I got this problem because my son was pullying the pan out and emptying all the ice-cubes into his cooler for his bottles of water and soda., He was not pushing the pan back far enough to seat into the motor of the crusher and this left room for the ice to accumulate under the pan and pushing it forward away from the crusher motor which makes a loud noise when the pan is not seated correctly. There is another problem I had because the freezer was opened to often. The door dispenser became warm and the crushed ice accumulated in the dispenser and froze there, so if I opened the door, ice-cubes would fall out of the pan all over the floor. Also check the back of the pan where the crusher connects to the motor, mine was full of frozen moisture turned to ice which kept the crusher from seating properly. If this is not your problem then I would call a repairman as doing it yourself can be expensive because you may buy a part and then find out the old one was ok and it still doesn't work. Ice maker parts are very expensive .If you are positive that you know what is wrong then by all means fix-it. Also check your frozen food if it is frozen solid or soft, you may have a completely different problem than the ice-maker. Hope I helped some.
